New Delhi, June 3: WhatsApp said on Thursday that it will not reduce the convenience of its services to users who do not accept its privacy policy, but will continue to send messages to remind them of the policy update. The company said that the recent change in policy does not change the privacy of personal messages and has already written to the government to assure that the privacy of users is of paramount importance to it. The government on Thursday told the Delhi High Court that WhatsApp is “forcing” its users to accept its new privacy policy by repeatedly sending messages daily before the Personal Data Protection (PDP) Bill becomes law.

The government has asked the court to direct the company to put a stop to this. A company spokesperson said in an emailed statement, “We reiterate that we have already responded to the Government of India and assured them that the privacy of users is of paramount importance to us.” The Facebook-owned company has insisted that its controversial privacy policy will not limit WhatsApp-related features in the coming weeks. “Instead, we will continue to remind users of the policy updated from time to time and to provide information on choosing to use important optional features, such as interacting with a business account supported by Facebook,” the spokesperson said.

The spokesperson said the recent update does not change the privacy of people’s private messaging and is intended to give people additional information about how they interact with business accounts, if they choose to. He said that the company will continue to do so at least till the upcoming PDP Act comes into force.

Significantly, the government has announced new IT rules for social media companies. Under this new rule, large social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp will need to take additional measures. This includes appointment of Chief Compliance Officer, Nodal Officer and Grievance Officer in India etc. Major social media platforms were given three months to comply with the new rules. In this category, those social media platforms are kept, whose number of registered users is more than 50 lakhs.
